that climate change has little to do with the state of the environment, but much to do with the state of capitalism and transforming the american economic system and you see an opening with sandy, right? >> i do see an opening because, you know, whenever you have this kind of destruction there has to be a reconstruction and what i documented in the shock doctrine is that these right-wing think tanks leak the american enterprise institute and the cato institute and heritage foundation, they historically have gotten very, very good at seizing these moments of opportunity to push through their wish lists of policies and often their wish lists of policies, after hurricane katrina there was a meeting at the heritage foundation just two weeks after the storm hit. parts of the city were still under water and there was a meeting and "the wall street journal" reported from it and the heading was 31 free market solutions for hurricane katrina and you go down the list and it was -- don't re-open the public schools. replace the public schools with vouchers and drill for oil in anwar and the arcti
in that environment to know that he does not think of those things lightly and let me make it very clear that based on again, my discussions with him, he has not provided paula broadwell or anyone with information, classified information that they shouldn't have. >> has he had any conversation or contact with paula broadwell in the last few days? >> last few days, i'm not aware of any. she, up until everything that came out with the news, i'm sure she was still working on her dissertation. there was some potential contact back and forth over a little bit of time about that. you have to imagine somebody who is doing their dissertation is not going to just give up that entire body of work and research very easily. >> what about jill kelley? how do you describe david petraeus' relationship with her? >> i think very simply as close personal friends of not only david petraeus but of his wife, holly, as well. they met the kelleys not too long after they arrived at tampa, mcdill air force base, home of u.s. central command, where he became the commander october 31st, 2008. my understanding is that the kel
the atmosphere that we are facing and the environment that we are going to face in january? >> first thing i would remind them is to expect the up expected. a couple of years ago, we were all stunned when president obama signed into law the tax relief act that extended bush tax cuts and increased transfer tax exemptions to historic levels. we are now looking at something very different and we need to prepare for taxes rising, but also, take advantage of certain opportunities today. as you say, we have got about six weeks left to get it done. >> let talk about some of those advantages, because it's such a scary story really. >> yes. >> if you've had a decent year in the market and you have some gapes, a lot of people are talking about apple, for instance, there's some thought that maybe if you have a pretty decent gape in apple, do you take those profits this year? do you accelerate your income at this point? >> well, think about what's happening to capital gapes tax rates. we are at 15% today, slated to go up to 20% in january, plus you have the specter of the new medicare tax, which now we
from oozing into the environment in the area. that is the sand walls you're looking at right here. they just switched on the lights. we're looking at dump trucks and 18-wheelers coming in, melissa bringing in this debris. the president did do a flyover when we were here at 11:30 this morning. he did give a shoutout to the sanitation workers, melissa because they're the first-responders that basically removed the debris. the new york parks department gratefully to the area opened this up. if they didn't build this landfill hill, the rebuild would have even been slower, melissa. right in the area, it is heartbreaking. photo albums, toys, bicycles, children's car seats. i picked up photos just around my area. it is a heartbreaking sight for people affect bid this. the story gone unnoticed. the reason why the fires were very bad in breezy point and rockaways, melissa, is because the degree was in the way. sanitation workers got in they helped to stop that problem. i will give it back to you. we'll go live throughout the early evening with updates what is going on here. it is a heck of
behind him. you raise taxes in this environment, this is not a growing environment, you're asking for trouble. you're rolling the dice, and i'm telling you, dividend taxes, you know, this is like insane. in any event, it is what it is. we have got to report. you got to do what you got to do. liz: president clinton did it in boom times -- >> no, he didn't. president clip clinton -- clinton did it in 93. we did not have a surplus until we had the internet bubble in 1996. that is the bottom line. i don't care what anybody says. liz: i missed that surplus, i don't care what anybody says. >> look at the gdp growth after he raised taxes. look at our economy right after -- it did not do very well. liz: charlie gasparino, thank you. your tie now is appropriate now that the segment is over. >> okay. liz: closing bell ringing in 27 minutes. confidence among you the u.s. consumer hitting a five year high this month but with the fiscal cliff looming and employment on the rocks, which retailers will come out on top this holiday season, and should you be buying their stocks? joe feldman tells t
news group." paul rogers, environment writer for "san jose mercury news." and carla marinucci, "san francisco chronicle," senior political reporter. carla, you get to have all the fun. you were in chicago on tuesday night. tell us what was it like. were people surprised at the close, the short drama? >> well, you know, belva, we were in the snoechs the snoeno hampshire, you know how dramatic it was all the way through. just amazing to be there on that final night. this was a much different election night than 2008, when 250,000 people greeted this sort of landmark moment. barack obama is more weathered, he's -- >> belva: graying. >> graying, but boy, the -- the democrats there, it was just pandemonium. and i think -- this time, it was tears of relief. instead of joy. that this contest has been so tough, so expensive and so important in so many ways and we saw it so negative that i think people are glad it's over, but to be there and to watch the president give that address and we heard him today in washington talking about what happens now in this country. i think the republicans l
practice in the environments they're in all the time outside of school. >> and i would say that having listened to the word "media literacy" as far as back when i was carrying 3-inch quarter cassettes years ago and it was a great job. it really was. to teach media and digital literacy out of context is a fool's error and we have the boring curriculums in the world and teaching it out of the context. >> we have to stop blocking. >> yeah. i don't know. >> somebody -- okay. >> teachable moment. >> i hear everybody talk about -- >> thank you. >> yeah. so i have learned the phrase "teachable moment" since becoming a resource officer and i try to incorp rat that with a discipline situation and i try to use the teachable moment with the parents as well so you can move forward all together instead of just making everybody upset. >> i have some comments actually responding to what you asked about, the zero tolerance and different proposallity. one of my colleague and looked at this across the last 15 years and noticed a trend what we called "net widening and net deepening" and more behavi
it is not a major league stock. it is the wrong stock for this environment. >> susan. >> how do you feel about exel? >> i like exel. and by the way, another one of -- another one of our specs, dbax, nice move today. remember, i am in favor of speculation as long as it's only one small piece of your portfolio. and that is the conclusion of and that is the conclusion of the lightning round. but whetr he's climbing everest, >>> everybody is freaking about about washington. the fiscal cliff is a man made problem that congress and the president created. if they would stop squabbling with each other they could solve this thing with the stroke of a pen. i'm not trying to minimize the scale of the problem. it could send our economy back into a recession. i'm going to keep going. people are saying why is this stock and that stock down. it is always the same. it is because the fiscal cliff. it is killing stocks. but you know what? some of the stocks that would be the worst hit, the defense contractors, are telling a different story. as a big part of the cliff, they are telling a different story. i'm talking
at a normal interest rate, i'm a guy that wants to go 50/50 bond equities, are you saying in this environment i should be 75 equities, 25 bonds because of the risk? >> yeah, i think the problem is nobody is 50/50. today people are sitting at 80% this bonds. 10% quit tis and a little bit of cash. here's the big issue. americans need to retire. 75% of them have already said they don't have enough money. 40% said they'll never have enough money. so they're funding their lon term liability which is retirement 15 years, on average 58 years old, and they're funding it with a security that's at the end of its peak cycle. so usual getting zero rate of return and you're saying i'll fund the liability by an investment that i'm guaranteed to lose money in. the world is more complicated. it's not 50 stock and 50 bond. so you have to say i need to start to move into a more balanced portfolio. the big problem people have is they think it's a binary switch. i go from stocks to bonds. maybe risky people and speculate tors do that. but it means i need to start to lessen my bond position, because more balanced
're talking with mike magner, the "national journal" energy and environment managing editor. he's also got this terrific book called poisoned legacy, great read about bp's rise to power. bp both on how they handled the gulf coast spill but also some other things in their record. mike, how bad are things in the coast right now? >> oh, boy, there is a long way to go on the cleanup. bp spilled an estimated five million barrels of oil into the gulf and in addition to a lot of natural gas that leaked and then when they were trying to clean it up, they used all of these dispersants, these chemicals that have really never been used on that scale. they cleaned up a lot of it by burning some of it off the surface and scrubbing what landed on the beaches but i talked yesterday to people in louisiana who say that there's still at least a million barrels out there. some of it is in wetlands in louisiana that's really difficult to clean up. and some of it -- because of the dispersants is still floating around out there. in particles and at
environment for stocks. >> that means you'll get some uneasiness extending into 2013. it won't have the cliff aspect at least in the first half of 2013. so, the can is kicked down the road. you'll have more like a simmering uneasiness waiting for washington to stay focus and arrive at a compromise. >> reporter: as to whether a solution on the fiscal cliff will result in a rally for stocks here on wall street. experts say the answer to that is yes. suzanne pratt, "n.b.r.," new york. >> susie: still ahead, a major deadline gets pushed back for health insurance exchanges, a key part of president obama's health care reform. >> tom: lunch box staples for generations of kids could be history. hostess brands-- the maker of twinkies, ho-hos and wonder bread wants to sell everything to liquidate the company and go out of business. it's asking a bankruptcy court for permission. as diane eastabrook reports the move follows months of financial problems and labor un-rest. >> reporter: hostess brands says it decided to liquidate after a strike by members of the bakery, confectionery, tobacco workers, and g
for the pbs news hour. lauren sommer, science and environment reporter. and josh richman, bay area news group political reporter. josh, let's start with you. all of a sudden it seems like california, which was in the depths, is now rolling in money. and there's more taxes, we've passed proposition 30. i can't believe there's that much of a turn-around. is there? >> well, there is a turn-around. i wouldn't say we're rolling in money. i've never seen a state so happy to a $1.9 billion deficit over the next year and a half. that's basically where we're at. now, you have to look at that deficit, even though it's the size of wyoming's entire budget, in the context of a $42 billion deficit and $6 billion deficit, we've worn it down over time. with the passage of prop 30 last week, we have money coming in for the next several years to support education, k-12 education, college education and also to help out balancing out some of the mope that's needed by counties for the realignment of the criminal justice system. >> do you think prop 30 was the main reason that the deficit is lower? or is it the fa
remains cheap is by workers very little. but as you say there are environment externallalities as economists like to call it. the ways in which the food companies push out the environmental costs of what it is that they produce. they push out the healthcare costs, when we buy a dollar burger built into that dollar is not the long term healthcare cost of eating foods that is high in salt and fat but these are the ways that corporations manage to avoid the full costs. >> gavin: you talked about $200 hamburger. has there been actual work through the economics of a hamburger? >> yes the 200-dollar burger is an idea that came from a bunch of researchers in india. if this burger comes from a cow that was grazed on land that once upon a time was rain forest we can factor in the loss ecoservice and that's just the footprint. that does not include the low wages that are paid in the food industry or fields where even today we have workers who are living in conditions of modern day slavery. they're growing the tomatoes that end up in our burgers. the $200 hamburger is just $200 because of
know white house environment -- involvement was not an isolated incident. the energy and commerce committee of the house of representatives, e-mails specifically refer to joe biden and his staff advocating for solyndra, the solar panel company that received $528 million in loan guarantees before declaring bankruptcy in september of 2011. solyndra was rushed through in september of 2009 so that vice president joe biden could appear at the opening on september 4th. on august 31st, days before and, a communications aide to the vice president asked them to speed this up and there was pushed back from career staff at the office of management and budget. kevin carroll was chief of the office of management and budget energy staff, quote, i would prefer this announcement be postponed. this is the first loan guarantee and we should have a full review with all hands on deck to make sure we get it right. they didn't get it right and five hundred twenty-eight million taxpayer dollars were lost. it could be seen that the energy loan guarantees and a notoriously unsuccessful record. of the 33 e

gl blow you up. >> it is in this environment human resources rules that don't make any sense really for mroit es. it is uncertainty about taxes coming into the marketplace. they want to regulate fan motors over horse power in a highly competitive industry. >> they say it's necessary to carry out the purposes of a 1 of the epca whatever that is to conserve the energy resources of the nation. >> they are on my side. >> you want to make money. >> we are constantly testing fans there's an industry with a scientific approach to this. >> it is helping you sell fans. >> absolutely. you are talking about a free market, john. >> they don't understand it. you have been in business for 35 years you built it from nothing to 700 employees. it was different 35 years ago. >> absolutely. compared to today it seemed like no regulation. certainly not at the federal level. >> we have state things to deal with now the government will be engaged in our healthcare after 25 years of self insured and efficient we don't need their help. >> i have my own copy of obama care. >> mine is much fresher than yours
of $15 a barrel oil by 2025. in terms of prices, we're talking about in the environment similar to today's, maybe slightly worse, in order to hit those and provide incentive to hit those will targets and also to dampen demand. that is part of the iaea calculus. you have both the production and demand side. an order for us to even in part a modest amount and get to that point requires a major steps forward in fuel efficiency. host: so who is benefiting the most? guest: the middle east continues to benefit tremendously. opec countries share a global connection forecast to go up -- production forecast to go up to nearly half of world oil supplies. the middle east remains a big beneficiary. the u.s. will be better off in those terms than it would be without this increase will bring production. we will be keeping more money at home. oil makes up about two-thirds of our trade deficit now. that number will decline. oil companies that do very well with higher prices will continue to do very well. host: back to the idea of shale gas. you mentioned some parts of the country where this is happening
to make it possible. >> develop a supportive environment that helps moms. >> the voluntary recommendations include keeping mother and baby together 24-7 moller in the hospital. no pacifiers. >> less incidence of asthma allergies, and diabetes. >> shady grove has stopped accepting formula from companies. the offer private rooms were staffers can nurse or stored their milk. >> my mother did not breast feed me. if i am having a hard time, she will say let's give her a bottle of formula. >> officials say support for breast-feeding moms need to continue once she is home and back to work. >> i do not know how many times i have gone out or i do not have enough diapers, but i have milk. >> some others or choose -- cannot or choose not to breastfeed and officials say that is completely their choice. the goal is to support those who do breastfeed as long as possible. >> the legendary rockefeller center christmas tree -- this norway spruce is coming from new jersey. a town that was battered by hurricane sandy. the treated survive. -- tree did survive. >> that is a symbol of survival like all of the p
environments. >>> researchers in canada say there's no need to fast before taking blood tests to determine blood cholesterol levels. they found results on patients who did not fast were accurate as long as the doctors knew the hour of the patient's last meal. >>> you're trying to quit smoking? well, there may be an app for that some day. resevers in new zealand say smartphones could be a new tool to help smokers quit. they found smokers who received motivational text messages are more likely to stay away from cigarettes. that's kind of interesting. >>> time now for the question of the morning. >> what word most married couples use to describe their spouse? is it a, understanding, b, stubborn, c, forgetful? >> they don't sound very nice. log on to our facebook fan page. we'd love to hear what you think. we'll have the answer in our 6:00 hour. we're also giving away tickets to "les miserables." all you have to do is answer the question of the day correctly. we'll put your name in a hat and randomly draw a name every day. "les miserables" is at national theater coming up next month. we'll be
school. the goal is to emphasize the need for safer school environments. >>> local government leaders, students, teachers and local religious leaders are working to reduce teen smoking. today they're going to join the healthcare coalition for all in annapolis to ask for a $1 increase. three cigarette taxes have reduced smoking by 32% in the state of maryland. that is more than double the current national average. >>> you voted to expand gambling, now you're going to find out exactly what that means. this morning maryland casinos are going to be offering plans for table games and 24-hour gaming. they're expected to address the reconfiguration of the casino floor to help accommodate those new games, the creation of 1200 jobs and introduce a dealer training school. officials will also talk about the impact this could have on future tax revenues for the state of maryland. >>> time now for a check of that forecast once again. lynette is here with us. you talked about the changes that were coming. this was on friday and into monday. you have certainly held up your end of the deal. >> i lo
. this is not going to happen overnight, but you have to have an environment that allows it to happen. i think congress has to do something. they have to do something to bring fha in. gerri: that idea, you know, helping low-income people, forget about it. i want to ask you quickly, what is really a p effort going on to make people wat to keep fha. here is shaun donovan saying that they have weathered the storm by taking the most aggressive and sweeping action in the history of reform. trying to make the point today that we have more money coming. everything is going to be okay. americans, go back to eep, keep sending us your taxpayer dollars. >> absolutely not. what they are not mentioning, and they did this a year ago when they came out with a report, they knew the projected house price numbers were completely wrong. they basically ignore that. then they made a correction this time to the tune of $10 billion. well, this time they are using interest rates frojuly, and they are basically saying that mortgage rates are going to double by the third quarter of 2014. well, there was a little event
're not directly getting at that. >> i think the carbon tax makes enormous sense to do with the environment impact of energy use. you can design one in a way that does not cause too much harm for american industries that compete with folks abroad. consumption tax, there are things you can do to treat the income tax to make it look more like a consumption tax. >> i want each of you to give me your thoughts at the end of the day, what do you think the tax code will look like with his conversations between the cop -- between the president speaker boehner are done? >> i think we will have slightly higher marginal tax rates on some high-income tax -- and these 1 high income tax payer. i think there will be a variety of tax exclusions and deductions that are scaled back modestly. >> if scaled-back means capped in some way, i agree completely. rex i think we will see some of those things will back. the top rate will be either 39.6 or 35. it will be somewhere in between. >> we have some common ground here among our economists. thank you, a gentleman for joining us. thank you all. i appreciate the peterson
this on the eve of an election. again, i'm obviously not positing some huge conspiracy. in our environment, in our hyperpartisan environment, most people in a situation like this seeing any possibility for political advantage would have raced to expose something like this, right? general petraeus was confronted about this two weeks ago, right? two weeks before the election. chose -- ultimately decided to resign but didn't decide to resign at that moment. was there part of the reason he did not decide to resign immediately upon being confronted on this, he knew it would be embarrassing for the administration on the eve of an election? that's a reasonable inference. there's so much we don't know because so many people individually have not spoken publicly about the chain of events and their motivations in terms of keeping quiet at a moment of maximum political volatility. >> just to clarify because i've raised a lot of questions here, my biggest concern isn't what happened at the end. i understand there are a lot of conservatives that are going to be thinking that this was -- >> cover-up. >> benghaz
should be positioning your portfolio in this environment of uncertainty. he manages more than $14 billion for westfield capital. and will, i know you've got interesting thoughts about what's working right now and what people should be doing. which is great, we hear from a lot of people who freeze up at this point, keep things in cash. but you're looking specifically at stocks that might benefit from things like an improvement in the housing industry, which is something we heard yesterday from home depot. >> yeah, exactly. i think the one big difference with the debt ceiling negotiation, for example, the republicans had an incentive to make the current administration look bad because they're trying to win an election, right? well, now with the election over, i think there's an incentive for them not to obstruct. and so i do think something will get done. it'll most likely be a minor deal to buy some time and maybe we get a major deal in 2013. but at the end of the day, i think there'll be some fiscal drag in the first half of '13. rather than sitting cash where you get zero, what can you d
not to destroy the world's environment, which they will do if other things being equal. and so we want to work with them on avoiding environmental just destruction. we want them to continue bringing people from rural poverty to sort of urban working classness, which is what they've been doing. we want them to grow up in both international and domestic ways. grow up internationally in having a foreign policy that's not just whatever's good for them commercially, which is what their foreign policy is now. and to say, "okay, you have to play a role in iran and syria or whatever, being responsible." domestically, we want them to gain confidence so they don't have to have their foot on their people's neck. most of the time in china you don't know the government's around. just kind of a sort of state of chaos -- >> really? >> and, yeah. >> i mean, not like russia, the soviet union -- >> oh, it's -- >> not that blanket -- >> entirely different. it's most of the time the areas the government cares about, the internet, democratic protest or whatever, taiwan, tibet, they're all over. when it doesn't inv
. and in these kinds of environments where we see few details often those are the best deals. it's when everyone has confidence and equity markets are up and everyone is feeling great that they do stupid things. >> right. there you go. >> let's check in with bob pisani here on the floor with more of what's moving this morning. >> boy, did i hear dumb talk over the weekend about going over the fiscal cliff. i guess you were going to hear it. go ahead. let them go over the fiscal cliff. who cares. i heard this even from some people whose opinions i respect. well known economists and columnists. good heavens. did anybody look at what happened last time we were talking about this? the fiscal cliff is a wake-up call to politicians. august 2011, we were all here sitting on this floor when they couldn't agree on simple ability to raise the debt ceiling and they downgraded the debt. remember what happened? the s&p dropped 7% that week on the monday after it dropped another 7%. the vix went to 50 for a long time it stayed there. it ruined it the entire summer. almost the entire year of gains for virtually ev
to know what their taxes are going to be. they need to know what the regulatory environment is going to be. they need to hhve an element of confidence before they're going to go out and start hiring again. right now, the large firms sector is under down, the small firm ector is down 15 at 20 feet tall waiting for some safety to come out again. so it is really incumbent upon washington to find the regulatory tax and fiscal landscape in a positive way. lou: of want to go through some of your outlook. you are saying that if we go over the cliff, tax hikes and spending cuts will translate into sequestration and the lapse of the bush tax cuts. the tax hikes would translate into a reduction in economic growth of 4%. that's automatic recession. >> absolutely. so the fiscal cliff is a contraction in the government impulse and the economy of 4-5% of gdp. i would say in the first order that will hit and reduce economic growth from 2 percent down to-1,-2 very easily. lou: and your outlook on employment, unemployment dropping -- dropping, in my dreams, rising from just under 8% to 9 and a half percen
is the environment changing because of all of this. >> the more far-sighted politicians see this coming. the mayor was out not that long ago, and it was not an announceed doctor it was not a schedule. he was just touring some of the areas. we just happened to have a camera there and we caught him being cussed out by a middle aged white guy, a middle aged black woman they looked like they were from different opportunities. and they all came together to cuss him out. this is what people can't quite get to, unlike 9/11 where everybody knew, everybody understood it, whole communities have been wiped out. chose kinds of numbers that you're talking about people, all of their neighbors where they shop, all gone. and the city seems to be functioning, the other part of the city, the celebrities in manhattan. they're still throwing their costume balls and hanging out at the clubs. the politicians sense that there is going to be an ugly response. >> eliot: not to relive the marathon decision, but for everybody who wanted life to go on we're resilient we continue and we won't let this deswayed us. but when yo

such as protection of the environment as well as narrowing the gap between rich and poor. but as i said, these are very carefully worded. especially this year. no one wants to say something that is too aggressive or too reformist. because of course there is a pretty powerful group that are against pro market reforms. there are some that benefit, some leaders especially that benefit from the status quo like the officials of state owned enterprises which enjoy some advantages in the form of easier access to loan and less competition. >> if i could ask whether it really matters if the way that we read the tea leaves if it's the reformers or the conservatives here who have more influence in terms of this transition. what he he's the latest view one impact it will have? >> tons of speculation ahead of the roll out on thursday. it's likely going to be a mix of both some reformerses and some conservatives, but you're right in the sense it may not matter in the short term, but long term it will have an impact because some analysts say that the hu jintao administration on the way out did not do
the environment for investment. the corruption piece is amazing. let me tell you, and -- i bet he knows a lot about this. but in the dodd frank bill, there's an amendment called -- lugar. and it makes it through a any -- on the new york stock exchange, it is law that they have to publish what they paid for the mining rights. the truth of it is right now the american petroleum institute is suing the s.e.c. to try and overthrow that. that is astonishing. and i know people in those companies are amazing people, and it's very important, your energy here, and it shouldn't be, and it's not in this case a political issue. europe and america -- europe is going to follow this lead. are going to make this outlandish owe pass to the best of my recollection and if that word doesn't exist, i'd like suggest it to the committee of the oxford dictionary. but the opaque nature of these deals is north of the equator. because when you publish what you pay then the civil societies in those regionens get to hold their government account. that's one of the best things you can do to stimulate business and investmen
